For those of you who doubt the durability of laminate floors, I present: Pica!
A hyper Jack Russell is no match for this floor. Even her claws sliding across it do not do any harm. (Dropping an attachment from your stand mixer will leave a dent though, as I learned the hard way.)(Roomba also cannot be trusted after leaving swirls on the floor. Punk robot!)
As an added bonus, since Pica cannot get much traction on this floor, she slides excitedly into the wall, the door, the fridge, (etc, etc!) whenever we come home.
